Where Public Health and Social Change Intersect

“This is the world in which we live; one that poses new challenges and calls for a new level of innovation and leadership. These challenges cannot be solved only one person at a time—solutions must improve health for whole populations in order to protect each person’s health.”
— Linda P. Fried, MD, MPH Dean and DeLamar Professor of the Mailman School of Public Health

In 2006 the Foundation established the Allan Rosenfield Fellowship Fund to honor Dr. Rosenfield’s extraordinary commitment to Public Health.  Each year this affords four talented students the opportunity to gain advanced training in the fields of public health and social work.

Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health pursues an agenda of education, research, and service to address the critical and complex public health issues affecting New Yorkers, the nation, and the world. The School educates over 1,200 graduate students a year, who typically represent more than 40 nations. They benefit from an internationally recognized faculty devoted to the art of superb teaching. The student experience is further enriched by the School’s many world-renowned research centers, including The International Center for AIDS Care and Treatment, the Center for Infection and Immunity, and the National Center for Disaster Preparedness.
